Football.London have revealed that, as things stand, those at Tottenham Hotspur expect their Premier League clash against Leicester on Thursday to go ahead. 

Tottenham’s Europa Conference League clash against Rennes and their Premier League clash against Brighton were called off after an outbreak of COVID-19 at the club last week. 

The Telegraph revealed today that the club suffered another blow with the news that an additional first-team member had tested positive.

Despite this, it has been revealed that Spurs are still hopeful of reopening the first-team section of Hotspur Way over the coming days, provided the results of further rounds of tests are encouraging.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he has not been informed his side’s clash against Spurs is likely to be called off and he expects the game to go ahead.

The Foxes themselves were hit with a COVID outbreak last week, with seven of their players missing the Europa League loss to Napoli last week after positive tests.

According to Football.London, like Leicester, Spurs also expect the game at the King Power Stadium to go ahead.

Even if Conte has only around 15 first-team players at his disposal over the coming days to prepare for the Leicester match, I suspect he would still want to go ahead with the Leicester match.

Having a third Premier League game postponed would result in terrible fixture congestion in the coming weeks and months, which might cost the side points.
